    Default VServer on OpenSuse

    Hi guys,

    I've just installed openSUSE 11.1 in one pc. I've just installed the text-base version because it's a bit old pc. However, the point is that I really need to install Vserver in it. I've tryed this tutorial:Installation on Linux 2.6 - Linux-VServer , but ir only seems to work with older kerner versions. I've searched a lot at google using all means I knew to find a way to install it on openSuse 11.1, but I wasn't successful. So, I'd like to know if you guys have a way to help me with this issue.
    [I'm about to download openSuse 10.3, which I believe has the kernel version used on the tutorial, to try to make things work]

    Thank you

    Well it looks like the vserver project is still testing their patches for newer kernel versions. You could use the experimental patches for 2.6.27. Since you have to compile your own kernel you are on your own anyway.

    If it's going to be a text only managed machine, perhaps you should consider Debian or Ubuntu which have pre-built vserver images.

    I did a quick search at software.opensuse.org/search but AFAICT nobody is providing vserver package from OBS.

    Well, I downgraded for openSuse 10.3 and installed it downloading all .rpm files I found here:Software.openSUSE.org and it worked good. The only point now is that I don't know how to build a guest system (I'd like this guest system running openSuse as well).

    cheers

    I know this is old, but i'm replying for general info.

    Setting up, configuring and maintaining vservers is easiest on Debian of all distro's out there. I know, i've tried. And not any particular Etch and Lenny both do it just fine.
